Bayern is not unbeatable if we just believe! by SK
The game against Bayern Munich is the game we all have been waiting for! This game is the game that will test out mental resolve! This game is the game where we once again come out to support our beloved Arsenal! This game is another opportunity for us to make things right!
Fellow Gooners, we face the mighty Bayern Munich on our turf. Bayern Munich has been our nemesis in the champions league for some years now but when next we play, we need to become their own nemesis! Do we believe? Do we doubt? What are your expectations for game? Before you start wondering what this writer is really jabbing about, let me paint some possible scenarios for you and maybe prepare your minds for the surprise of the season.
Scenario one: The game is about to start, the team sheet is out! As expected, Ospina makes the list. The boss and monsieur Mustafi are our two central defenders. Bellerin and Monreal takes charge of the wing backs. Ozil, Xhaka and Coquelin handle the midfield, while the front three are Sanchez, Walcot and Chamberlain! The referee kicks of the game with the sound of his whistle. The game is 15 mins old and from nowhere, Chamberlain bursts down the left wing with the ball, finds Sanchez at the edge of the box, lays a pass for him and Sanchez fires the ball, Boom! One goal to Arsenal! 17 mins later, Xhaka wins the ball, finds Walcot making a run, squares the ball to him, Walcot cuts in, from the edge of the box, he plays the ball straight at Neuller, who tries catching the ball with his legs but the ball slips through and we have our second goal! 2 mins to the end of the first half, Sanchez finds himself being fouled inside the box, referee blows for penalty, Sanchez steps up to take it and we get our third goal! End of first half. 20 mins into the second half, we get a free-kick and Xhaka takes it and hangs the ball at the right top side of the roof! Four goals for Arsenal. Now, Bayern are desperate because they are going to be knocked out if they don’t score but during one of their attacks, they lose the ball, Arsenal launches a counter, Chamberlain runs with the ball, gets to the edge of the box, crosses the ball and Ozil nods the ball to make it five goals for Arsenal. The game ends with Arsenal passing the ball fluently, while Bayern gets confused.
Scenario two: The sheet is out, Ospina makes the list, the back four is the same as the first scenario, and our midfield consists of Chambers, Coquelin and Ozil. The attack is loaded with Perez, Sanchez and Welbeck. The game kicks off, Perez and Sanchez troubles the defence of Bayern. During one our onslaught, they are forced to make a mistake; Perez sees a loose ball, rounds Nueller and scores into an empty net for our first goal. The first half ends with a goal for Arsenal while Bayern mounts pressure. Second half starts, the boys come out smoking, probably after a good pep talk from the gaffer. We get a corner kick after 5 mins, Ozil steps up to take it, he plays it into the box, Welbeck takes a leap, his head connects to the ball and he scores a powerful goal! Arsenal 2- Bayern 0. The game is getting tough, Bayern is really pressing us, they get an attack, Robben shoots the ball but Ospina is up to the task! He launches an attack for Arsenal, he sees Welbeck making a run, he kicks the ball, the ball lands at Welbeck’s feet, he notices Sanchez making a run, he passes the ball to Sanchez, Sanchez does his dribbling drills, two defenders are out, he had an option to either go for goal or pass the ball to an on-rushing Xhaka, he chose to lay the ball for Xhaka, who then fires an unstoppable shot into the net for our third goal!. Eight minutes to the end of the game, we get a counter attack, Ozil plays the ball into their box, Alonso tries to clear the ball but his weak shot meets Perez at the edge of the box, Perez fakes a shot, Nueller dives to the ground leaving an empty net for Perez, who wastes no time in putting the ball inside the net! And so, the game ends four goals to none, in favour of Arsenal.
I hope you guys are on the same page with me because I was taught never to lose hope while I still have the chance to make things work! Folks, it is not over until it is really over! Go for it Arsenal! Show them never to write us off just yet. Folks, hope you see the same scenarios as I see?
